PhotoTangler - App Review

The developer states:

"PhotoTangler Collage Maker is a powerful image app that instantly turns your favourite photos into beautiful collages. It allows you to blend them together in unique and creative ways. It's easy, fun, and the results look like magic! Just drop photos on the canvas, and watch PhotoTangler seamlessly blend them together with any other photos nearby. Anyone can get gorgeous, professional looking results, even with no graphics experience!"

Let's put it to the test.

Now for the ACIDS test:

This is one of those Apps with an uncluttered interface, just how we like them.

The whole screen real estate is initially perfectly clear, and is limited to a few icons across the bottom of the screen. To the left you will find:

Add Images
These can be from existing Photos, from the iOS device camera, as well for adding captions. The choice of fonts is absolutely amazing, and the sizes vary from a modest 12 point to a whopping 256. You can also enable text outline, and edit drop shadow settings, including colour (if required).
Settings Cog
Alter the background colour from the default pale grey to any one of a myriad, chosen with the aid of a colour wheel and slider.

No explanation required.

There are then (also at the base of the screen but on the right) three editing modes:

Image Editing
Drag and pinch items to rotate and resize. The image is within a set of defined points.

Canvas Editing
Here you are actually selecting the whole of your work (as opposed to individual parts).

Blending Editing
Double click on an element and edit the blending shape, outer radius, or inner radius. This enables you to edit with great precision.

Once you're finished, your masterpiece is easily saved, and you can even specify the aspect ratio, as well as image quality.

The App Costs $3.

Not necessarily for everyday use but, if you want to make a collage, an easy way to proceed.

The App works fine, although the response time will depend on the newness of your iOS device.

The App is self-contained, so no concerns on this front.
The App needs access to your photos and/or camera.

ACIDS Test Rating:

Even the artistically challenged can make a collage.
